FREE TRANSLATION OF THE FOREGOING. This case is false. I did not go to steal anything at his houpe. The facts are these, I missed my cow which I had bought from Dhaniram a year ago. The cow, though carefully kept by me, used to visit her former owner's house very often, and I had to go and fetch her several times. On the day referred to by Dhaniram I went to his house to see if my cow had gone there. That was after sunset. I walked through his bari as usual to see whether my cow was straying there., (It so happened) that at that time his sister Malati, a grown-up girl of 18 years, came to the bari with a water-pot in her hand. It was then nearly dark. She "saw me unexpectedly going towards her though I myself had not noticed her. She got frightened and screamed as if she thought I was a ghost. The people of the house, including Dhaniram, came and seized me, saying that I had come there to visit the girl. TJiat was the story Dhaniram told to the police, but in the Court in order to hide ft$ shame of his rsiste? he givea out that I was stealing his mangoes and that Malati saw me first on thatree.
